With the most compact in-line 6-cylinder engine in serial motorcycle production to date, the K 1600 GT and the K 1600 GTL penetrate a whole new dimension in terms of riding properties, long-distance suitability and comfort. They combine maximum agility and riding dynamics with a luxurious overall package. The dynamic touring bike BMW K 1600 GT is characterised by an active seating position which nonetheless offers a high level of long-distance comfort. The reason for this is the favourable set-up of the ergonomics triangle made up of footrests, seat and handlebars. The K 1600 GT has a very extensive range of standard features ex works consisting of xenon (HID) headlight, heated grips and seat, cruise control and on-board computer. These features in conjunction with the supreme riding qualities of the new BMW Motorrad six-cylinder engine leave nothing to be desired for the proactive tour rider.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row layout=”normal” margintop=”20″ marginbottom=”20″ paddingtop=”20″ paddingbottom=”20″ bg_color=”#f8f8f8″][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_column_text]K 1600 models has three different engine characteristics directly available at the press of a button at the right-hand end of the handlebars so as to be able to adapt to different uses such as touring on the road, riding on wet surfaces and sporty, dynamic motorcycling – the modes “Rain”, “Road” and “Dynamic”. Available as an option ex works, the traction control function DTC is combined individually with the different modes, fully harmonised with them so as to provide maximum riding safety. The additional adaptation of the spring rate allows the damping settings “Sport, Normal, Comfort” to be spread widely in ESA II, giving them clearly perceptible characteristics during riding.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_single_image image=”7565″ img_link_target=”pretty_photo” img_link_large=”yes” img_size=”1200px x 800px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row layout=”normal” margintop=”20″ marginbottom=”20″ paddingtop=”20″ paddingbottom=”20″ bg_color=”#f8f8f8″][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”7568″ img_link_target=”pretty_photo” img_link_large=”yes” img_size=”1200px x 800px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]So in “Sport” mode, the K 1600 GT and K 1600 GTL are even more dynamic and precise and in “Comfort” mode they are more comfortable – while still retaining excellent stability. With the new BMW Motorrad touring bikes, the first ever “Adaptive Headlight” option is available ex works in the motorcycle sector as a supplement to the standard xenon headlamp. In addition to standard pitch compensation, the light of the main headlamp is also balanced in relation to banking angle. This produces significantly improved illumination of the road when cornering and therefore an enormous increase in active riding safety. Particular attention was paid during development to the combination of innovative design, optimum wind and weather protection and the very highest level of functionality. A very good example of this is the electrically adjustable windshield with memory function.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row layout=”normal” margintop=”20″ marginbottom=”20″ paddingtop=”20″ paddingbottom=”20″ bg_color=”#f8f8f8″][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]The bike’s aerodynamic qualities in terms of reduced air swirl – especially in the pillion passenger area – were developed in sophisticated wind tunnel tests. But the windshield not only protects the rider and pillion passenger: it automatically returns to the starting position when the ignition is switched off, acting as an anti-theft system for the optionally available navigation system. The design of the ergonomic triangle from the position of the footrests, seat top and handlebars makes for a highly proactive seating position in the K 1600 GT, while still retaining a high level of long-distance comfort. The rider and pillion passenger enjoy a comfortable knee angle but the seating position is geared towards the front wheel for a dynamic riding style. The seat is height-adjustable in the rider area so that it can be adapted to individual needs.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”7566″ img_link_target=”pretty_photo” img_link_large=”yes” img_size=”1200px x 800px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row layout=”normal” margintop=”20″ marginbottom=”20″ paddingtop=”20″ paddingbottom=”20″ bg_color=”#f8f8f8″][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”7569″ img_link_target=”pretty_photo” img_link_large=”yes” img_size=”1200px x 800px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]The K 1600 GT is has a very extensive range of standard features ex works consisting of xenon headlamps, heated grips and seat, cruise control and on-board computer. In conjunction with the supreme riding qualities of the new BMW Motorrad 6-cylinder engine, this motorcycle leaves nothing to be desired as far as the proactive touring rider is concerned. The luxurious touring bike BMW K 1600 GTL meets the very highest demands. Rider and pillion passenger benefit from the very relaxed, upright seating position as is especially appreciated over long distances. The ergonomic design is geared towards maximum comfort and derives from a single-section, dual level seat in conjunction with rider footrests which are further forward and lower, as well as handlebars which reach further backwards. The standard topcase rounds off the range of comfort features for the pillion passenger.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row layout=”normal” margintop=”20″ marginbottom=”20″ paddingtop=”20″ paddingbottom=”20″ bg_color=”#f8f8f8″][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]Like the K 1600 GT, the K 1600 GTL has a very extensive range of standard features consisting of xenon headlamps, heated grips and seat, cruise control and on-board computer. The overall impression of the fascinating 6-cylinder motorcycle in combination with a carefully conceived storage concept, a standard audio system and numerous design elements make the BMW K 1600 GTL the flagship model among the BMW Motorrad touring bikes. As touring bikes, the new BMW K 1600 GT and K 1600 GTL stand for a perfect synthesis of supremacy, dynamic performance and comfort. In the K 1600 GT, the body colours of Light Grey metallic and Vermilion Red metallic create a fascinating contrast with the frame and wheels in Ostra Grey and the engine in Platinum metallic matt. The colouring especially highlights the bike’s technical components. Here, Mineral Silver metallic or Royal Blue metallic 2 provide a perfect match for the Magnesium metallic matt of the painted frame and wheels. The engine in Platinum metallic matt ensures an appealing overall impression.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”7564″ img_link_target=”pretty_photo” img_link_large=”yes” img_size=”1200px x 800px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
